i tried to post new questions in FAQ and kept sending me back to homepage?

is there anytime line on old threads being restored in the south america section? when googling questions it links to old threads but then TT says they are unavailable?

316The pinch and zoom on mobile and tablet devices has been raised several times before. Does the fact that it has only just been added to your list mean that you aren't actually reading the bugs posted here? Similarly, there was feedback here quite some time ago that the GAP year branch wasn't there and you've only just looked at it?

Zabba, there was no mobile version of the site before. We were just seeing the regular site on a small screen. While not ideal, at least it gave us the same functionality. You have made a deliberate change by creating a mobile version of the site, but the implemented solution is a mess - you've tried to solve a problem that wasn't there to begin with, and in the process delivered a lower quality service. Hang on, where have i seen that before? i guess it's rather symptomatic of the whole TT meltdown.
The easy solution is just to disable the mobile site and let mobile users surf the regular site, just like before 26 December 2012. It is not rocket science.
Then, when the team has time to do things properly, design a mobile version, test it, and be prepared to improve it based on feedback.

teamflames - answers to your questions below
hereandtherenz - I can assure you that I am reading the bug reports posted here and adding them to the (very long) list of work in the backlog.
Thanks for the support Krest.
I can appreciate how frustrating it is to have the forum back, but not operating as it once did. Sorry about that. It's as frustrating for the team of moderators as it is for our members. We are feeling the same pain.

Just posted a reply on South Am branch, but only after second attempt and proofreading it twice. I removed the word "sh**hole" to replace it with "dump" and that went through.
I was referring to Esmeraldas, a small town in Ecuador that I'd describe as "an extremely dirty, shabby, or otherwise unpleasant place", which is the definition of sh**hole according to the online dictionary I looked up.
What's wrong with words like the one I used?

326That's the problem with words - and programs that detect them - Fieldgate. They pick the word, not the meaning or intention. And Aunty Beeb's Mods are running scared because the word has come down from on high that somehow they have to contain us.
I've been trawling the board more than usual recently (because I don't like being treated like some idiot child) to see if the new 'mandate' is being kept to. But this time I'm leaving up posts that otherwise, as a 'good' TTer, I'd have reported; just to see how long they stay there. It seems others are doing the same.
Once we were self-regulating - not any more, I think.

i tried to post a long post with what I thought was usefull practical information on Vietnam but it is rejected with the words " This message contains content not allowed in this forum. " instantly, no time for a human to read it.
I have no idea what is wrong with it.
Is there a way I can send it to an editor / moderator. (It is in my drafts)
Thank you, peter

329Will an edit or delete post (as long as noone's posted after you) function be added? Not being able to edit a post is a problem. This function is very useful and used to exist on this forum and I don't know why that was removed.
I also tried to "post a new topic" on this branch and clicking on that button took me to the main thorn tree instead. Is this supposed to happen?
